Description

From the private investigator who cracked open the case that led to the arrest of Warren Jeffs, the maniacal Prophet of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), comes the page-turning, horrifying story of how a rogue sect used sex, money, and power disguised under a facade of religion to further criminal activities and a madman's vision.
The story of Warren Jeffs and the FLDS first came to broad attention in 2008, when Texas Rangers raided the church's ranch and took 463 children into the custody of Child Protective Services. The many instances of polygamy, underage marriage, and Jeffs' iron-fisted rule became the subject of hours of television news coverage, and at least three bestselling books by former FLDS members.
But until now the full story has remained untold. There is one man at the very center of it all who can reveal the whole, shocking truth: Private Investigator Sam Brower, who devoted years of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and bringing Jeffs and his inner circle to justice. In "Prophet's Prey," he implicates Warren Jeffs in his own words, bringing to light for the first time the contents of Jeffs' personal priesthood journal, discovered in a hidden underground vault, and reveals to readers the inside world of FLDS members whose trust he earned and who showed him the staggering truth of their lives.
"Prophet's Prey" offers the gripping, behind-the-scenes story of a bizarre world from the only man who knows the full story.
